Ice Bucket Challenge … Sort of…

bucket_head_shelbyMy sister Alexis DeNike nominated me for the Ice Bucket challenge, as she stated this hits home for our family as we lost our grandfather to ALS. I think the Ice Bucket challenge has totally helped to bring awareness to ALS, and really gotten a lot of people to donate that likely wouldn’t have.
I feel that its becoming more of a “hey look what I did” kind of challenge for most so I am going to pass on the dumping of ice water on myself and instead just go with the donation as thats really what is important here. I have made a donation to the ALS Association in memory of my grandpa Runo Leppanen. I have also made a donation to Charity Water in order to bring clean drinking water to regions that otherwise would not have access to clean drinking water.
